    This is what I wrote in my Journal while reading this book: "I don't understand Zen. Here's what I think: Doing something with the whole self involved 100% is the Way of Zen. Reading about Zen is probably no the Way. The Way of Zen is like floating in the sea and letting the waves take you wherever. I know more about the Way of Haiku, which I like.
